I am guessing that almost every British pre-teen has a copy of one of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s books. Perhaps you now feel that you are too old for the Snail and the Whale, or the Gruffalo, but I bet you can still recite bits of the text.

Wise old man, won’t you help me, please?
My house is a squash and a squeeze.
